Page file should normally be left at automatic. However if you are concerned about space, the biggest it should get is 3 x memory, or 36GB.

Actually Ronin, the question is about page file size. That page you linked is about recommended memory size for Exchange server.
You're correct, the more targeted answer would be:
The recommended paging file size is equal to the amount of RAM in the server plus 10 MB
